|Tomatoes||1 Pound (4 Small)|
|Garlic||2 Clove (10 gm)|
|Olive oil||2 Tablespoon|
|Freshly ground pepper||To Taste|
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Line a 9-by-12-inch baking dish with foil and brush lightly with olive oil.
About 1/4 inch from the top, slice off the tops of the tomatoes.
Discard the tops and stand the tomatoes, cut side up, in the pan.
Use a garlic press to make a paste of the garlic, or chop the cloves very finely.
Drizzle about 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil over the top of each tomato, and distribute the garlic evenly over the oil.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Bake until the garlic is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
Cool slightly before serving.
